- Amazon.com: China’s Environmental Challenges (China Today) (9780745660912): Judith Shapiro: Books
In this trailblazing book, noted China specialist and environmentalist Judith Shapiro investigates China’s struggle to achieve sustainable development against a backdrop of acute rural poverty and soaring middle class consumption. Using five core analytical concepts to explore the complexities of this struggle – the implications of globalization, the challenges of governance; contested national identity, the evolution of civil society and problems of environmental justice and equity – Shapiro poses a number of pressing questions: Do the Chinese people have the right to the higher living standards enjoyed in the developed world? Are China’s environmental problems so severe that they may shake the government’s stability, legitimacy and control? To what extent are China’s environmental problems due to patterns of Western consumption? And in a world of increasing limits on resources and pollution “sinks,” is it even possible to build an equitable system in which people enjoy equal access to resources without taking them from successive generations, from the poor, or from other species?
- Consolations at the End of the World: Book Review: China’s Environmental Challenges
Judith Shapiro’s readable new book, China’s Environmental Challenges, untangles these contradictions and provides a snapshot of China as it teeters on the edge of unprecedented ecological limits. Shapiro was one of the few Americans to enter China before relations between the two countries were normalized in 1978 and now teaches global environmental politics at American University. In the book, she looks at how national identity, government structure and civil society play into China’s approach to environmental issues.

- Evolving attitudes to foreigners – Globaltimes.cn
Four years ago, Beijing sang “Beijing Welcomes You” for the 100-day countdown to the 2008 Olympic Games, but now the city has added an “if” during the 100-day crackdown on illegal foreigners. Beijing welcomes you if you are not an illegal immigrant, have not overstayed your visa or are working with the right visa…
Instead of relying on tips for exposing illegal foreigners, China’s National People’s Congress is considering updating the country’s current laws to regulate the entrance, residence and working status of foreigners in accordance with new conditions.
If the new law is approved, police will have more power to directly handle illegal entries and related cases, and a special custody house will be set up for foreigners who break the law.

The emergence of the much-touted Shenyang J-16, following years of speculation, represents a surprising twist in China’s more than decade-long effort to build a world-class air force — and a reminder to outsiders that even Beijing with its tight central control, extensive manufacturing base and apparent deep pockets cannot perform aerospace miracles.

102-megawatt Donghai Bridge Wind Power project in Shanghai and the Rudong Offshore Intertidal Zone Wind Power project in Jiangsu.All is not good, however.
